An adventure story set in the Solomon Islands sees Jack and Toni, childhood schoolmates, set out on a routine boat trip to a neighbouring island, but things go awry when they discover, due to an oversight by Toni, that they do not have enough fuel to make the journey and are stranded at sea. At first they are optimistic that they will be rescued within hours, but as the first days draw to an end they slowly begin to realise that the mistake has left them in serious jeopardy and they can see no end but their own demise in sight. Based on a true story, as the days lengthen at sea, we are gifted with a vision of the beauty of the Solomon Islands and the environmental debt it is owed by the world, after decades of over-fishing, logging and now rising sea levels due to global warming. At the heart, this is a crucial and important novel on climate change, culture and human relations.
